My ability to develop strong relationships is the key to my success in real estate sales and was developed over a 20 plus year successful sales career which included the building materials industry. By listening to my clients and determining their needs I am able to develop a plan to assist them whether buying or selling a home.
- I have a reputation for going the extra mile for my clients. I had several buyers who have closed before the holidays and wanted to make cosmetic changes after closing. I coordinated with contractors, painters, and electricians before they closed to get estimates so these changes were implemented in a timely matter after close. In addition, I had several clients moving out of town and I made sure the home was cosmetically ready and staged the home to put on the market. I handled all the details so these clients were able to leave town without being concerned about the home sale and closing.
- Team work is key with my clients and throughout the process with attorneys, mortgage brokers and other real estate agents. Clients have appreciated that I have an eye for staging their home to put it on the market and I am a skilled negotiator and make sure that my client's needs are always at the forefront of every transaction.
- Awarded 4 times the "Chicago Five Star Home Profession Real Estate Award" in the Chicago Magazine.I highly value this award because it was my clients who have nominated me.
Longtime resident in the Lake County where my husband, kids and I are active with our school, youth sporting organizations, church, and several local charities like St. Vincent de Paul and Feed My Staving Children.
Finally, I truly enjoy working in the real estate industry because I get to be a part of my customer's greatest joys which is purchasing a home for their family or closure in working as a team to sell their current home so contact me and we can work together on your goals!!

She had helpful resources for all aspects of the selling process. Sue is very good operating on a timeline without being overbearing. She was very responsive, positive, and considerate throughout the process. Our listing was visually excellent with positive responses from potential buyers and importantly it sold in a quick time frame for a good price. Sue has an excellent knowledge of the area. She also has a network of helpful people to partner with for other aspects of the buying and selling process."
"Sue is the best realtor there is. Let me explain.After dealing with two other realty firms unsuccessfully I found Sue’s ad on the back of my church bulletin and decided to contact her. She sold our home in within four months. Not only was she successful, she is A very hard worker and went above and beyond when my husband passed away suddenly before we closed. She took care of everything that needed to be done to the house until closing.
Sue is results oriented and told us up front her only goal was to sell our house. She was so thorough, kind and understanding that she was truly my angel during a time of distress. She is the best!!! I would highly recommend her. A +++"

Sue even gave us pointers decorations and contractors support we would need as we got ready for our big move day!. I would definitely recommend her to my friends & family! It has been great working with you Sue."
"I'm not sure how there could be a better broker than Sue Dunnigan. She schlepped all over town when I needed a rental unit, represented me when I bought a home, when I sold that home, and when I bought the next one. In all the hours I've spent with her, she has never been anything but a pleasure to work with, way more patient than I deserved, an excellent listener, knowledgeable and sincere. Oh yes, and honest. Delicately explained to me why my outmoded tastes would make my home harder to sell, then proceeded to make the changes necessary to market and sell that home. And, she was spot on. She reminds me of it still, but that's a small price to pay. Lots of brokers promote themselves with hype about service and dedication. Sue delivers. You couldn't ask for more."
"Sue was absolutely amazing. She made our first home buying experience very smooth. We purchased our home while living out of state, therefore only had one weekend to look at houses. Sue organized our visit and house hunt wonderfully so that we could see as many homes as possible in just two days! She did a great job communicating with us and ensuring we understood all the steps in the purchasing process."
